Backorders and Discontinued Products

Typically every item we sell is stocked.

  • In this event, we will give you an estimated time of availability and give you the choice of:
    1. canceling the out-of-stock items
    2. holding off shipment of your entire order until the product is available
    3. receiving a partial shipment of the in-stock items first and the out-of-stock items when they are available

  • We process sample swatch orders as a courtesy. There is a limit of 1 sample per fabric pattern, per customer and a limit of 10 free samples per order with a total of 20 free samples annually. Sample swatch availability changes frequently and samples often become out of stock once a fabric has been slated to be eventually discontinued by the manufacturer. Most Sunbrella samples are stocked in house and are provided either free or for a nominal charge. Decor fabric samples are placed on your behalf, direct with the fabric mill. In the event that a paid-for sample cannot be fulfilled, we will refund you the amount that you paid in the form of loyalty reward points to be used on future orders. If a fabric sample is out of stock or discontinued, we are happy to research and provide you with suitable alternative choices.

For furniture, heaters and other non-fabric products, the return policy is determined by the manufacturer.

  • All templates or patterns will become the property of OutdoorTextiles.com and will not be returned.
  • There will be a minimum charge of $25 for the additional labor needed to use a template or pattern to produce your product/project.

Returns:

Since we do not stock custom fabricated goods, we are unable to accept returns of custom fabricated products, sewing services or repairs. We will always work with you on any concerns you may have with the custom products or services ordered to achieve a satisfactory outcome. The only returns deemed acceptable would be for material defects or if a product was not made to the specifications that you the customer provided.
We will take full responsibility for the costs of modifying and/or correcting any mistakes that we may have made. If we are unsuccessful in fabricating or sewing a finished product or repair using the specifications provided by the customer, as long as:

  • The customer contacts us within ten (10) business days after receipt of the finish product.
  • The customer agrees to allow us the appropriate amount of time to modify and/or correct our mistake.
  • The customer cooperates with the return of the product, by allowing us to schedule the pickup by our ground carrier and making the product available for the pickup return.
  • All authorized returns for modifications, corrections or repairs must arrive back in new condition. They must not have been used in any way, and arrive back in the same packaging as when they were shipped.
  • All returns will be inspected in accordance with the original order and to the customer specification(s). If we deem the fabrication, sewing or repair was completed to the customer's original order and specifications and also within our tolerances, then the customer will be responsible for all costs incurred with the return process and the return of the product(s).

Comfort and Feel:

Everyone has their own preference when it comes to the feel of cushions and comfort. OutdoorTextiles.com uses only the industry’s highest quality foam products. We are not responsible should the customer not accept the comfort, feel or form of the foam fill.

By doing so it will increase measurements a minimum of ½ inch. This can increase by the fabric selected and at times the overall size of the cushion.

All our measurements including width, height, depth, and thickness are taken from seam to seam. We do not include the welt or piping in our measurements. As well as the increase in the size due to the addition of Dacron.

This needs to be considered when placing orders and providing measurements.

Our Obligations:

  • To fabricate or sew a finished product or repair to the specifications set forth by the customer in accordance with the information provided in our quote form and/or via communications with the customer.

Tolerances: (We always measure twice and cut once.)

We make all efforts to complete your projects to your specifications. There are some instances with material shrinkage and/or stretch during the fabricating, sewing and/or repair process that are out of our control.
Therefore we will fabricate, sew or repair your product within the following tolerances:

  • Cushions and Pillows dimensions will be within 3/8 inch of the dimensions specified by the customer.
  • Panels, Tarps and Awnings will be within 1/4 inch of the dimensions specified by the customer.
  • Drapes and Curtains will be within 1/2 inch of the dimensions specified by the customer
  • All other product types will be within 1 inch to 1/2 inch of the dimensions specified by the customer.

Order Changes or Cancellations:

We accept order changes or cancellations within one (1) business day from when the order was placed. The exception to this would be an order change or cancellation fee.

Order change fees would be determined by the requested changes, in materials and/or dimensions.

Order cancellation fees vary based on the status of the order. For instance, if the fabric has been ordered there will be a charge for shipping and restocking. If the product(s) are already been cut or in fabrication the fees would vary.

Changes or cancellations can only be made via telephone during normal business hours. The fees associated with changes or cancellations will be determined within 24 hours of the notification.

Once the order changes or cancellations fees are assessed we will send the customer a Change Order Authorization email to confirm, prior to the commencement of your changes or fees.

There will be a 30-day hold for all COM or custom template orders. If more time is required we will need the request in writing via email to support@outdoortextiles.com.

If we do not receive the COM, template or written extension request, the order will be canceled. A 25% or $75 custom fee, whichever is greater, will be charged.

Workmanship Warranty:

Customer's Own Material (COM)

This option allows you to send your own material to be used in our custom manufacturing workroom.

Lead-times do not start until we receive your fabric.

The material you intend on using must be available commercially at competitive pricing and not handmade, used, or a fabric that we deem not to be applicable for the project or defective.

Please call 727.597.4141 to confirm all yardage estimates if you have any repeat* larger than 16 inches. The repeat* has a big part to play with how much yardage we estimate is needed for each project.

Remnant or leftover fabric will be either recycled or donated. We will not send it back with your order.

Starting the Process on Our Cushion Builder

  1. At the "Start Screen" choose your cushion type.
  2. Under CUSTOMER'S OWN MATERIAL (COM), select the checkbox for "Use Your Own Material"

Understanding Yardage Requirements

  • The required amount of yardage will appear on the Review page of our Builder, Shopping Cart and Order Review, as well as your order confirmation email. (be sure to check your junk and spam folders)
  • Based on the information above, it allows us to adjust the estimated yardage accordingly.
  • One lineal yard equals 36 inches × the fabric width.

Tell Us About Your Fabric

  • Make sure to provide as much information as possible when sending us your fabric.
  • We will need the vendor, brand, pattern, color and description.
  • Is your fabric reversible? Mark the top side that will be visible when the product is finished.

Prepare Your Shipment

  • Fabric must be rolled not folded.
  • Make sure to protect your fabric with cardboard or heavy plastic.

Sending Us Your Fabric

  • We strongly suggest using a shipping service that provides a tracking number and insurance.
  • Please print out your order confirmation email and include it with the fabric.
  • Provide the information above either typed or written and include it with the shipment.
  • If you have a distributor sending us the fabric on your behalf, they must include: Your Name and Order Number as well as their contact information.

eCentral Stores
Customer's Own Material
10820 US HWY 19 N
Clearwater, FL 33764

Our liability for lost, misplaced, damaged COM fabrics will not exceed $50.00 per yard, and we will require proof of purchase if necessary.

Glossary of Terms

  • *Fabric Repeat – refers to stripes, patterns or plaids and is the measurement between each element. Choose a point in your fabric and measure from that point until you reach that same point again. The distance between those two points is the repeat.
  • Horizontal Repeat - runs across the roll, railroaded
  • Vertical Repeat – runs down the roll

How repeats effect your estimated yardage – the fabric needed is calculated in multiples of your fabric's repeat. If you have a repeat of 15 inches and your cushion is 30 inches, you would need a minimum of 3 repeats as we would need a minimum of 31 inches to sew the project together.
